Chloe’s tribute read, ‘And just like that, he’s gone… Glen (Hoggi/y/ie) Hogstrom left the Earthly stage so wonderfully peacefully last night.’ 

‘His last couple of days were spent in a delirium that every thespian hopes will be their final exit…he believed he was preparing for a new show…his joy was obvious…he was back doing what he loved most, with those he adored.’ 

‘He knew he was surrounded by the love of his family and friends, despite the deep challenges that currently surround caring for those in need.’ 

She concluded, ‘Chookas, gorgeous man, for your new show in the sky….what a show it will be.’
